UPS Surepost:

Emerson Creek Pottery uses UPS SurePost for shipping small packages. This means that our smaller packages go out via UPS, but end up being passed on to the Post Office for residential delivery.

Shipping to Canada:

Emerson Creek Pottery can ship our pottery to you in Canada. For Canadian orders, we use USPS Priority Mail International. Please note that list shipping prices in the shopping cart when you place your order are in U.S. dollars.

Order Fulfillment:

We normally ship in-stock items within three days of receipt of the order. If the item is out of stock we will email you with the estimated date it will be ready to ship. Please keep in mind we hand make and hand paint everything, and this can lead to a delay in shipping, especially with our personalized pottery items.

Shipping Transit Times:

UPS Ground: to east coast normally 1-3 days. To west coast about 1 week
